Smoothies are an excellent way to seriously pack in a ton of nutrition! Just look at this ingredient list...it's a bit long, but for a moment, imagine sitting at a table eating each ingredient individually. You'd never think to eat spinach for breakfast, or be downing a spoonful of a superfood like spirulina, would you? This also has potassium and electrolyte rich coconut water as part of the liquid base, along with more potassium found in the banana. The list of benefits is MAJOR. Especially if you are working out a lot, this protein and nutrient rich smoothie will help give your body the fuel and nutrients it needs. And - totally free free to mix this one up a bit as you get the hang of it. We like adding things like apples (skin on), frozen pineapples, avocados for extra fat and creaminess, etc to our smoothies too.
There is no denying how easy smoothies are to fit into the busiest of lives. Packing a smoothie with a great balance of protein, fat and healthy carbs is a great way to throw together a meal to go. This smoothie packs a bunch of antioxidants, energy and goodness in a cup. Enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.
Who says you have to eat your oatmeal with a spoon!? This recipe is perfect for that girl on the go meal, where sipping your breakfast is more realistic than sitting down to eat it. Simple, nutritious and delicious.
